In a Vase on Monday
Thanks to my tardiness at posting in this meme over the past few weeks I have a few vases built up now… Also, I often renew them all at the same time, meaning 3 or 4 vases in one go.
Today we’ll start with the Alliums and Chives. Why do I cut the Alliums? Well, they make good dry blooms, and I have so many Allium seedlings every spring; the borders look like they’re full with grass, but they’re in fact Alliums. I really don’t need even more coming up.
Next up is a more ‘wild’ and ‘free’ vase. I was trying to make it look nice and wild with the Bladder Campion and the Quaking grass makes it really nice and romantic.
The Quaking grass will feature in future vases too, as it makes a nice backdrop, and this year I have plenty of stems so can afford to cut them.
